Heavy Heads

The peonies have been glorious this spring, in part due to all of the rain we have had. I realized that I had better capture the before they all faded!

My lettering go a bit muddled, but I managed to capture the impression of the multitude of leaves, at least. Maybe tomorrow I will try another view while they are still in full flower.

Sadly, a few days later, my lovely Amelia was snatched by a predator at dusk. I am heartbroken, left with just a few feathers….sometimes, life on the farm is tragic….
